How To: Empower AAPIS
This month's "How To" provides several ways our community can get involved and empower Asian American and Pacific Islanders. In this video, you will find a base level introduction into finding out different ways on supporting the AAPI community and address the violence against Asian Americans.
This video is by no means an exhaustive and complete list of everything you can do to support the Asian American community.
Other ways you can help:
Report incidents of hate to Asian Americans Advancing Justice's Stand Against Hated reporting system here.
OCA's National Hate Incident Reporting Form can be found here.
For a list of legal resources, national Asian Pacific American advocacy groups, hate crime statistics, and more, visit the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association's website for their list of Hate Crime Resources
For an extensive list of various historical materials, Asian American press guidelines, bystander trainings, brief overview of anti-Asian policies and much more, download this Asian American Day of Action toolkit and see how you can help the Asian American community and spread the word.
